I have just had the chance to read the Free Rein Series: New Beginnings novel by Christine Meunier.
What a delight!
New Beginnings is just that. It is the story of a young girl’s dream to learn to ride and hopefully, one day, own a horse. The author, Christine Meunier, writes about stable duties, lessons, life at a stable, and all around horse care, while involving the reader in young Jacqui King’s quest to make new friends at a new school and learn all she can about everything ‘horse’. Jacqui’s parents support their daughter’s dream as they work hard cleaning up a leased property in order to turn it into a fully functional boarding stable, with a lot of love, prayers, and help from their kids.
Christine Meunier is an Australian writer who writes books for children with a distinct Christian theme and a lovely sense of ‘good’ kids leading ‘good lives’. http://freereinseries.com/
If you are North American like me, it will take some time to learn the Auzzie ‘lingo’ for boarding stable and horse trailers, but you’ll figure it out.
This novel is suitable for young readers, especially city girls who dream of nothing but horses.
